    How do you keep the underside of your deck(s) clean?

    Lots of scraping !!
    That is about the best way, some guys use aftermarket sprays, or slip plate, I would just suggest scraping your deck every time you change or sharpen your blades, sometimes more frequent than that due to wet cutting conditions.

    1) Scrape.

    2) Install double high lift blades.

    3) Spray 3 coats of Mo-Deck, let dry fully in-between coats.

    Grass will stay off deck longer, and scrape off more easily when you go to do it. Double blades also really help..lots of airflow.

    Also, try to schedule your cutting when you know the grass is dryest..tough to do all the time, but it will extend your mean time between scraping.
